venience. The purpose of these proposals is to 
provide a pattern of coordinated land uses to be 
interpreted in amendments to the zoning ordinance,

ments with those of a private nature, thereby ar- 
ranging for an orderly use of land in a progressive

on a per diem basis may be given leave of absence 
with pay for periods not exceeding fifteen (15) 
days in the aggregate during the year on account

such leave shall be shown to the department head

davit or other means; and provided, further, that

cation must be made to the head of the department 
in writing within said three (3) days accompanied

and severity of such sickness.

bined, but only in the event the long-continued sick- 
ness of the employe warrants such course; should 
such long-continued sickness extend beyond twenty-

"Negro History Week in Chicago". 

City ok Chicago 
Officio of the Mayor 

Whereas, the second week' in February has long 
been observed as Negro History Week in recogni- 
tion of the achievements of the Negro race in 
America; and 

Whereas, a profound influence has been exerted 
by the Negro on our country's cultural, political, 
and economic growth, many of our most distin- 
guished scientists, educators, artists, and civic 
leaders being of the Negro race ; and 

Whereas, these accomplishments reflect the inter- 
dependence of all races and creeds in the develop- 
ment of our democratic heritage; and 

Whereas, appreciation for the capacities, talents, 
civil and human rights of all minority groups leads 
to understanding, mutual respect, and harmony, 
whose benefits accrue to all the people and enrich 
the lives of men everywhere; and 

Whereas, the freedom and inalienable rights of 
the majority of the citizens are secure only when 
the rights of the minority are likewise secure and 
given lawful and equal opportunity to be heard; 

Now, therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby oroclaim the period 
February 8 to February 15, 1948, as Negro History 
Week in Chicago, and do urge the people of Chi- 
cago to cooperate with the National Negro Museum 
and Historical Foundation and similar organiza- 
tions in highlighting the role played by the Negro 
in the past and living history of America.

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Whereas, the week of February 22-29, 1948, has 
been designated as Brotherhood Week by the Na- 
tional Conference of Christians and Jews; and 

Whereas, the wisdom, science, and culture of the 
ages recognize no boundaries of race, color, or 
creed, every individual possessing the power to 
make a contribution to human happiness accord- 
ing to his capacities and opportunities; and 

Whereas, the freedom from violence and strife 
so ardently hoped for by all the peoples of the 
world cannot be achieved until a spirit of humility 
and unselfish devotion to the common good replaces 
hate and suspicion in the hearts of men; and 

Whereas, tolerance, understanding, and harmony 
are indispensable not only to international good- 
will but to the strength and vitality of the demo- 
cratic way of life, of our community, and of our 
nation ; 

Now, therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the period 
from February 22 to 29, 1948, as American Broth- 
erhood Week in Chicago, and do urge the people of 
Chicago to observe this week with full awareness 
of their responsibility to preserve that spirit of 
brotherhood so essential to the progress of our 
community and our nation.

versary of the day when Chicago's water supply 
was shut off by the packing of ice around the in- 
take of the old Chicago Avenue crib — the only 
water intake the City had at that time — and John 
E. Scully, a volunteer, in sub-zero weather and a 
raging gale went down and restored the water 
supply to Chicago by freeing the ice at the crib 
intake, and in doing so was sucked into the water 
tunnel and only miraculously escaped death; and

virility and courage of the men who founded and 
developed our city, is an important part of C!hi- 
cago's history;

pioneers in demonstrating the practicability of the 
automobile and the airplane. He held the second 
automobile license issued by the City of Chicago 
and was among the early group to be licensed as 
airplane pilots; and 

Whereas, As a member of the City Council from 
the old 13th ward from 1901 to 1905 John E. Scully 
started the movements that resulted in the motori- 
zation of the police and fire departments and the 
establishment of the two-platoon system in the fire 
department; and 

Whereas, John E. Scully was also for many 
years active and prominent in military affairs and 
was a nationally-recognized leader in athletic 
sports, especially ice skating, and is today, although 
81 years of age, still in full vigor and active in all 
movements for the good of his city and his country. 
He was one of the leading figure skaters of the 
country, is an expert swimmer, an accomplished 
gymnast, and an airplane pilot ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, in this anniversary month, hereby for- 
mally recognizes the outstanding services rendered 
by John E. Scully to the City of Chicago, and ex- 
tends to him good wishes for many more years of 
active and useful life ; and be it further 

Resolved, That this resolution be spread upon

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM CITY OFFICERS (RESUMED). 



Announcement As to Proposed Changes in Organi- 
zation of Police Dept. — Placed on File. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, submitted 
the following communication, which was Placed on 
File: 



City op Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

January 26, 1948. 

To the Honorable City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Ever since assuming office, I have 



1831 



1832 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCII^CHICAGO 



January 26, 1948 



been discussing with Commissioner Prendergast 
methods of improving the efficiency of the Chicago 
Police Department. We have spent a considerable 
amount of time in considering every conceivable 
plan in the hope that Chicago residents would 
benefit thereby if we were to utilize the abilities 
and training of the entire police force. 

Just a few days ago an announcement was made 
by me, with the wholehearted consent of the Com- 
missioner of Police. It is intended for the present, 
at least, to set up various divisions under the direct 
supervision of the Commissioner, the thought being 
that if any corrections or changes are necessary 
they can be made from time to time until the most 
efficient plan is evolved and in operation. Since it 
is intended to make changes frequently as occasion 
warrants it, no specific plan is being submitted to 
the Council at this time. None of the changes 
presently contemplated include changes in com- 
pensation, and, wherever possible, captains of police 
will be given added duties and responsibilities in 
order that we may receive the full benefit of 
their special training and aptitude. 

It is our hope that as these changes are made 
we will eventually present a program to the City 
Council for tlieir consideration and approval, hav- 
ing in mind the strengthening of our force, the 
v.-idening of its scope of activities, and the better- 
ment of living conditions in our city. It has always 
been my deep-seated conviction that the police de- 
partment is more than an agency for the arrest of 
persons involved in infractions of the law. An 
effective police department of necessity should use 
its daily combined energy toward the prevention of 
crime, the education of cur citizenrj', and the co- 
operation which follows when the taxpayers come 
to the realization that our police are interested in 
the development of the neighborhood. Likewise, 
children and young people should know that al- 
though police officers carry with them certain 
authority, they are also interested in giving counsel 
and advice whenever their aid is sought. We can 
make better citizens of our children if tliey learn 
respect for law and order through the activities of 
joint efforts on behalf of the police department and 
the residents of the various communities of our city. 

Chicago can only be as important and as progres- 
sive as its neighborhoods, and it is my desire, with 
the assistance of the Commissioner of Police, to so 
constitute the department as to make it a very 
vital and living force in the upbuilding of our 
neighborhoods through intelligent and co-operative 
effort on the part of every member of the police 
department. 

From time to time I will report to the City 
Council on the progress which we are making and 
will ask for amendments to the city code when I 
am convinced that the plan which is eventually de- 
termined upon is the most efficient and economical 
that can be devised. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kexnelly. 

Mayor.

Specified Areas Declared to Be Blighted or Slum 
Areas; Purchase of Portions Thereof (and 
Conveyance of the Purchased Portions 
to Chicago Housing Authority) 
Authorized; Etc. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report read- 
ing as follows: 

Chicago, January 23, 1948. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a proposed ordinance (referred by 
the Chairman of the Committee on Housing) sup- 
plementing an ordinance passed November 8, 1945, 
and redesignating areas for slum clearance, begs 
leave to report and recommend the passage of said 
proposed ordinance. 

This recommendation was concurred in by 21 
members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John J. Duffy, 

Chairman. 

The following communication and committee report 
were submitted with the foregoing report: 

January 22, 1948. 

Honorable John J. Duffy, Chairman, and Members 
of the Committee on Finance : 

Gentlemen — Attached hereto is an ordinance 
supplementing the ordinance passed November 8, 
1945, and redesignating the areas for slum clear- 
ance. A considerable portion of the areas have 
been acquired by the Chicago Housing Authority 
either under federal or state grants. The proposed 
ordinance would authorize the City of Chicago to 
purchase the land, or such part as is necessary for 
clearance, to pay for the same out of the $5,000,000 
bond issue passed April 16, 1945, and approved by 
the electorate on June 4, 1945, and to convey the 
land to the Chicago Housing Authority for re- 
development. This would permit the release of 
$1,800,000 in state funds and approximately $6,- 
000,000 in federal funds for construction purposes. 

At the meeting held today the Committee on 
Housing recommended the passage of said ordi- 
nance.; 

Inasmuch as the ordinance provides for the ex- 
penditure of not to exceed $2,525,000 from the said 
slum clearance bond issue authorized in 1945 and 
as such should be considered by the Committee on 
Finance, I hereby refer same to the Finance Com- 
mittee with the recommendation of the Housing 
Committee that the Finance Committee also recom- 
mend the passage of the ordinance. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) William J. Lancaster, 
Chairman, Committee on Housing.

The following is said ordinance as passed : ' 

Whereas, by ordinance passed by the City Coun- 
cil on November 8, 1945 (and with maps and 
boundaries of slum areas appearing on pages 4401 
to 4405, inclusive, of the Journal of the Proceed- 
ings of the City Council on November 8, 1945), 
certain areas numbered 1, 2, and 3 on maps and 
descriptions attached to said ordinance and made 
a part thereof were designated as blighted and 
slum areas, each being an integrated project for 
rehabilitation or redevelopment, and the City Comp- 
troller, upon advice of the Chicago Housing Au- 
thority, was authorized to acquire such areas sub- 
ject to the approval of the City Council and convey 
the same to the Chicago Housing Authority for the 
construction and operation of standard housing 
projects; provided said Authority had received a 
grant of not less than $4,300,000 as provided in 
"An Act to promote the improvement of housing" 
approved July 26, 1945, which sum has been re- 
ceived from the State Housing Board and of which 
a portion has been spent by the Chicago Housing 
Authority in acquiring slum and uncleared lands 
which are part of the lands shown upon the maps 
attached hereto and made a part hereof; and 

Whereas, due to the changed conditions and in 
order to facilitate such slum and blighted areas' 
clearance, it is necessary to eliminate area num- 
bered 2 appearing upon the map attached to said 
ordinance passed on November 8, 1945, as an area 
to be acquired, and to modify the boundaries of 
areas numbered 1 and 3 appearing on said map, 
and to add two new areas so that the land to be 
acquired will be all or portions of areas numbered 
1, 3 and 4 on the maps attached hereto; and 



Whereas, it is desired to authorize the City 
Comptroller, subject to the approval of the City 
Council, to purchase, upon the advice of the Chi- 
cago Housing Authority, portions of the lands 
shown upon said maps numbered 1, 3 and 4, which 
portions are owned or in process of acquisition by 
the Chicago Housing Authority, and to authorize 
the City Comptroller to sell, convey or donate to 
the Chicago Housing Authority such lands as are 
acquired for any legal consideration, including con- 
sideration other than cash; Now, Therefore, 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. That the authorization to acquire the 
areas specified in said ordinance passed November 
8, 1945, is hereby cancelled, and in lieu thereof, it 
is hereby declared that by reason of dilapidation, 
over-crowding, faulty arrangement and design, lack 
of ventilation, light and sanitary facilities, and a 
combination of these factors, the areas numbered 
1, 3 and 4 on the maps hereto attached and made 
a part of this ordinance and more particularly de- 
scribed on sheets attached to said maps, which are 
hereby made a part of this ordinance, are blighted 
and slum areas. 

Section 2. Any area of not less than in the 
aggregate of two acres hereby declared to be a 
blighted or slum area is designated as an integrated 
project for rehabilitation or redevelopment. 

Section 3. The City Comptroller and the City 
Council having been advised by the Chicago Hous- 
ing Authority that lands subsequently referred to 
in Section 5 of this ordinance and included in areas 
numbered 1, 3 and 4 on maps hereto attached and 
made a part of this ordinance are desired by said 
Chicago Housing Authority for construction of 
housing projects, the City Comptroller is hereby 
authorized and directed to purchase said lands for 
the City of Chicago. The City Comptroller shall 
purchase for the City of Chicago from the Chicago 
Housing Authority, at not less than the total cost 
of acquisition thereof to the Chicago Housing Au- 
thority, but not to exceed a total cost of $2,525,000, 
all or any part of such lands subsequently referred 
to in Section 5 of this ordinance owned or now -in 
process of acquisition by said Chicago Housing 
Authority. The City Comptroller shall thereafter 
sell and convey to the Chicago Housing Authority 
the lands acquired by the City of Chicago under 
authority of this ordinance, the consideration for 
such sale to be the benefit that will accrue by 
reason of the accelerating of the clearance of slum 
and blighted areas located upon said lands. 

Section 4. The property acquired by the City of 
Chicago pursuant to this ordinance shall be cleared 
of all unsafe and unsanitary dwellings and sub- 
standard buildings and shall be conveyed and 
transferred to Chicago Housing Authority for the 
construction and operation of standard housing 
projects. The City of Chicago hereby agrees that 
unsafe or unsanitary dwellings in the city sub- 
stantially equal in number to the newly constructed 
dwellings erected on lands so acquired and con- 
veyed to the Chicago Housing Authority will be 
eliminated by demolition, condemnation and effec- 
tive closing or compulsory repair or improvement. 

Section 5. The lands authorized to be acquired 
and conveyed by the City Comptroller under this 
ordinance in the manner and under the conditions 
set forth in Section 3 preceding are as follows:

"National Heart Week in Chicago". 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Whereas, heart disease constitutes our City's 
most important public health problem in that it 
affects more persons than any other disease, leads 
all others as a cause of death, occasions a greater 
number of days lost from work than any other 
cause; and 

Whereas, the week of February 8 to 14, 1948 
is being sponsored by the American Heart Associa- 
tion and its local component, the Chicago Heart 
Association, as National Heart Week for the pur- 
pose of focusing public attention on the medical, 
social, and economic aspects of this primary health 
problem and of emphasizing the fact that solution 
depends upon the fullest cooperation of the people, 
science, government, and health and welfare 
agencies ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the 
period February 8 to February 14, 1948, inclusive, 
as National Heart Week in Chicago, and urge the 
people of Chicago to cooperate with the Chicago 
Heart Association in observing National Heart 
Week with appropriate activities. 

Dated this 26th day of January, A. D. 1948.

tion regulations to permit construction of facilities 
for physical culture, etc, as a means of reducing juve- 
nile delinquency), concluding as follows: 

"The way the law is written, plus the fact that 
budget limitations have forced us to cut down our 
staff of investigators from 300 to 40 in the entire 
United States, causes me to admit quite frankly 
that I do not recommend the Construction Limita- 
tion Regulation in its present form to be included in 
any extension of the present Act. If this provision 
should be in any extension of the present Act, I 
feel sure that we can administratively broaden our 
list of exceptions so as to permit the construction 
of projects which would directly benefit the young 
people of our city."

ber 10, 1947, at which all interested parties were 
invited to present their views on this matter; and

mined that the bridge clearance selected would not

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

January 29, 1948. 

To the Honorable Chairman and Members of the 
Cpmmittee on Finance of the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The City is now acquiring, by con- 
demnation, properties between Harrison Street and 
Hubbard Street necessary for right of way for the 
Northwest Route of the Comprehensive Superhigh- 
way System. Under the law, immediately after the 
judgment order is entered, interest charges on the 
award accrue until payment is made. 

Inasmuch as the time necessary for the State to 
prepare and forward the funds varies, we are un- 
able to estimate the interest charges beforehand. 
It is therefore considered desirable that the amount 
of $10,000.00 from our Motor Fuel Tax fund 
allotment for right of way for the Northwest Route 
be forwarded by the State of Illinois, Division of 
Highways, and made available solely for the pur- 
pose of paying interest charges and court costs on 
this route. The allotment for right of way for the 
Northwest Route has been approved by the City 
Council and the State of Illinois. However, the 
funds are forwarded only when the amount for a 
parcel or parcels is determined and a specific re- 
quest is made. 

It is recommended that your Committee rec- 
ommend to the City Council that it authorize the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
request the amount of $10,000.00 from the State 
of Illinois, Division of Highways, and upon receipt 
disburse such funds for the purpose hereinabove 
mentioned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock, 
Commissioner of Subvjays 
and Superhighways.

JOURNAL- CITY COUNCIL- CHICAGO 



February 6, 1948 



The following is the opinion referred to in the fore- 
going committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

December 24, 1947. 

Committee on Judiciary and Sfate Legislation of 
the City Council: 

Gentlemen — This will acknowledge receipt of 
your request for an opinion as to the legality of 
a proposed ordinance relative to the eviction of 
tenants by landlords. The proposed ordinance is 
as follows: 

"Section 1. Any landlord who shall evict any 
tenant without due process of law shall be guilty 
of a breach of the peace." 

It is our opinion that this ordinance is beyond 
the power of the City Council to enact, for the 
following reasons: 

(a) We find no statutory grant of power to a 
municipality to legislate upon the landlord-tenant 
relationship except that contained in the recently 
enacted Community Emergency Housing Rent 
Control Law (111. Rev. Stats. 1947, chap. 80, pars. 
48-61). That statute contains no general grant 
of authority which would justify the passage of 
this ordinance ; 

(b) We find no statutory authority given to a 
city to define eviction without due process of 
law to be a breach of the peace. The power to 
define a misdemeanor in the landlord-tenant field 
is nowhere granted to the city, nor does the 
power contained in section 23-59 of the Cities 
and Villages Act (111. Rev. Stats. 1947, chap. 24, 
par. 23-59 ) "to prevent intoxication, fighting, 
quarreling, dog fighting, cock fighting, and all 
other disorderly conduct" authorize the city to 
define a breach of peace to be, as does this 
ordinance, the eviction of a tenant by a landlord 
without due process of law. It has been held 
that a legislative body may not declare that to 
be a fact which is not a fact (Carolene Products 
Co. V. McLaughlin, 365 111. 62 (1936). For the 
Council to declare that "any landlord who shall 
evict any tenant without due process of law shall 
be guilty of a breach of the peace" is an inva- 
sion by the legislative branch upon the province 
of the judiciary in whom is vested the deter- 
mination of factual questions as part of the 
judicial process. Whether such an eviction actu- 
ally constitutes a breach of the peace is a judi- 
cial and not a legislative question. 

(c) The power of a municipality to control 
and regulate the landlord-tenant relationship is 
limited by the aforementioned Community Emer- 
gency Housing Rent Control to the creation of 
a Temporary Community Housing Rent Control 
Commission and to supervision and direction to 
that commission as therein limited to housing 
accommodations which have been decontroled by 
the federal government. The submitted ordinance 
is broad enough in its terms to include the land- 
lord-tenant relationship in every instance and is, 
therefore, invalid as being an invasion of a field 
preempted by the federal statute and closed to 
the city's regulation by the state statute. 
Your communication suggests that if we think 

that the form of this ordinance should be changed 
we should submit a redraft as we may think proper 
• for the accomplishment of the purpose in mind. 
It is our thought that the existing laws relating 
to disorderly conduct and breach of the peace are 
adequate to cover an eviction without a court order 



which in fact constitutes disorderly conduct or 
breach of the peace. If, in fact, such an eviction 
without a court order is not a breach of the peace, 
the City Council has no power by legislative enact- 
ment to make it such. We do not believe that an 
ordinance to effect the end which you seem to have 
in mind can be so drafted as to render it valid. 

Yours very truly,
